Excerpt: I bought this game back in 1998 and at the time I wasn't a massive F1 fan. After playing the game the experience made me into a fan for life. The game provides an authentic F1 experience, with all the teams and drivers included and the driving aspect of the game is also top quality. Gameplay You can race individual Grand Prix either alone or split screen with a friend, or you can try for a full F1 season and become world champion.
Excerpt: This is the first racing game that succesfully computerised F1 for me. The graphics were good for the time of its release, all 17 tracks are realistic, the 97 grid had some spectacular race names and the game was a pleasure to play. The N64 had other F1 related titles but none of them were as good as this gem. The game is perfect when compared to F1 Pole Position or Monaco Grand Prix.
F1 Fans MAY enjoy this game, but i don't think you will if you dont have a particular interest.

Excerpt: Ever wondered what it's like to go from 200mph to 0mph in a couple of seconds? Well play this game and maybe you'll find out! Yesterday i decided to pick this game up again, after owning it for a few months, i put the game on rookie difficulty and tried the first race at Melbourne, i was 4 seconds behind the nearest driver in the qualifying, not exactly a good start.
A fairly good game, the best F1 game for the N64, good game if your a fan of the sport.

Excerpt: As far as F1 games go on the N64, this is probably the best one there is. I picked it up for about £2 on Amazon UK marketplace, well worth it in my opinion. The physics in the game are fairly basic, its quicker to cut corners instead of actually driving the track properly. When driving around corners, your back end may swing out a bit if you steer to hard, making your acceleration out of the turn fairly poor until you regain traction.
Excerpt: In the absence of a new Formula One video game i've found myself dabbling with some of the old classic racers to try and get me hyped up for the already mouthwatering new F1 season. Not having a new F1 game to play feels strange when you consider that ten years ago you could play three or four different titles a season and is even more surprising against the backdrop of the most exciting period in F1 since perhaps the days of Senna and Prost.
Excerpt: OK, you're a formula one driver, you'reracing around various tracks. what else can you say about the actual game? This has fast become a favourite of mine though. The steering does take a bit of getting used to, at first I was coming off the track allover the place,even on the striaghts lol. You will soon master the steering though, and race 16 cars around various word racing tracks. My 7 year old loves this, and again is better than mommy at it!
Excerpt: "Introduction ************* I first played the original of this game in 1999, this was my first serious racing game on the nintendo64, and I found this game and had fantastic graphics, the game play was very realistic and the sound was good and the handling was excellent. In 2001 I traded the original for the sequel I was hoping for an improvement on the original game. The drivers and teams ************************* The game has the 22 license ...
Pros: Up graded statistics on drivers improved graphics
Cons: Not much of am improvement on the original, handling
Excerpt: From the outside it looks very good, an official licence means it is far more realistic over other games. It doesnt include Jacques Villeneuve, which to me is a letdown considering he's my favorite driver, other than that there are all the other drivers and circuits of the 1997 season. That's 4 years ago, so it is getting on a bit. There are all the usual modes of play as well as a challenge mode where you have the chance to change what happened in 1997.
Excerpt: "...to the superb atmosphere of F1 World GP. Unfortunately, it is surprisingly easy, but makes up for that addictive gameplay. The sound system leaves much to be desired, which I hope will be fixed in the sequel, which I tip to knock Mario Party off number 1. I recommend you play as Pyrite, Hill, or if you cheat, Silver and Gold. It doesn't really matter though, like most racing games, the cars are mainly in contrast with one another, the ...
Excerpt: "...However, i got home with F1 WGP and played constantly for 18 hours, getting used to the handling, which is amazing. I then woke up the next morning and began a season, which is very in depth. i decided to be patriotic so i chose Johnny Herbert. I started in easy mode cos although id had a lot of practice, i wasnt THAT confident in my ability. after half the season (id played 100% ditances and the full qualifying etc) which had taken me around 3 ...
